March is historically the best time to list, if you go by when I think immigrants will come, I'd probably say August just because I'm assuming they have families and if you have school usually August is when the year ends.

You think immigrants comes with suitcase full of CASH and directly comes to your open house.

There is no specific month of influx. In summer many visitors come see their families in Canada. Those visitors are not buying houses.

If a immigrant not buying a house in Canada, I don’t see why our government gives them permanent resident.

To rent basements of canadian home owners to help pay them mortgages. I know many immigrants who work minium wage and work hard to make ends meet. Please don't generalize.

Around here immigrants come broke and squeeze into shady apartements for the most part(I'm born here but my parents were immigrant and we got out first house when I was 5). Then when they come up several years later they buy....GTA is something special and different.

You actually just missed them in January. So you will have to keep your house for another 10-11 months if you want to get top dollar, but by then you will gain another 25-60%

Rich immigrants who can buy properties outright come sporadically throughout the year, sometimes they buy even remotely. However, the bulk of immigrants do not come to Canada and start buying properties.. They search for jobs, rent out an affordable place, and then start their journey to save enough for a downpayment, i.e. if they are interested in home ownership at all.

P.S. Stop trolling.

Most immigrants when they arrive are poor, it takes them years to be in a position before they could afford a property.

Are you complaining about the past and current governments' immigration decision-making or are you trying to argue that issuance of a PR status should be predicated upon a purchase of a house? I think either one of those belongs in an immigration forum, not a real estate forum.

I am complaining our government takes too less immigrants from countries that are real-estate friendly.

And we take too many poor immigrants
